Unread post by Tiger »

Installation Instructions for HSFX Version 7.0

The HSFX 7.0 installation package is available to download via torrent which is much faster than File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

First you need to download uTorrent which is the software for downloading via torrents.

1. Download uTorrent: http://www.utorrent.com/downloads

2. Install uTorrent (follow the instructions, easy and fast).

3. Download the HSFX 7.0 torrent (HSFX Version 7.0.MkII.torrent) at Mission4Today:

http://www.mission4today.com/index.php? ... ls&id=1785

Note: You will need to create an account at mission4today.com if you do not already have one.

4. Unzip 2_HSFX Version 7.0.MkII.zip

5. Run HSFX Version 7.0.MkII.torrent


Filenames and Size

The installer for HSFX version 7.0 consists of the following files:

- HSFX_Version_7_0.EXE - 650 Mb.
- HSFX_Version_7_0.W02 - 650 Mb.
- HSFX_Version_7_0.W03 - 650 Mb.
- HSFX_Version_7_0.W04 - 62 Mb.
- Part2_Ver_7.EXE ..........- 650 Mb.
- Part2_Ver_7.W02..........- 650 Mb.
- Part2_Ver_7.W03..........- 620 Mb.
- Part3_Ver_7.EXE...........- 650 Mb.
- Part3_Ver_7.W02..........- 650 Mb.
- Part3_Ver_7.W03..........- 333 Mb.

This is a three part installation due to the size limitations of the installation software. Part2_Ver_7.EXE file is the second part, and Part3_Ver_7.EXE the third. Both are executed automatically by the HSFX_Version_7_0.EXE. To start the installation, place all of the files i the same directory and run HSFX_Version_7_0.EXE.

Note: This is a very large release because it contains all content from the very beginning of HSFX.

Steps Required to Install HSFX version 7.0

Step 1 : Use the jsgme switcher (jsgme.exe) and disable all installed mods, including HSFX 6.

Step 2 : Ensure that the version of IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 to which you are applying HSFX 7.0 has already been updated to IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 Version m4.12.1 (if you have just installed the m4.12.1 patch, run it at least once to be sure it is working).

Step 3 : Run HSFX_Version_7_0.EXE and answer the questions displayed by the installer.

IMPORTANT : For users with previous versions of HSFX and any other modifications installed, the HSFX Version 7.0 Installer will delete previous versions of the "Files" directory and all files contained within, and rename the "Mods" folder (jsgmemods) as they must be updated to work with the IL-2 Team Daidalos m4.12.1 patch to function. If you want to keep these folders you should rename them or move them before running the Installer.


Installation Instructions for HSFX Version 7.0.3
